I am being accused of breaking my buddies external hard drive. Whether I did the damage or not - I have no freaking idea.
He says when he lent me the HD, the prongs of the USB port were fine and in working order, and when I returned it they were bent, rendering the HD useless.
My question is can these prongs be easily repaired?
Can the data on the HD be retrieved?
Is it more cost effective to just buy him a new hard drive?
Any thoughts on the matter would be appreciated, and I'll try to pay it forward if ever stumbling upon the opportunity too.
